Question 6 Find the term independent of x in the expansion of (3/2 š‘„^2 " āˆ’ " 1/3š‘„)^6,x > 0. Calculating general term We know that general term of expansion (a + b)n is Tr + 1 = nCr (a)nā€“r.(b)n For general term of expansion (3/2 š‘„^2 " āˆ’ " 1/3š‘„)^6 Putting n = 6 , a = 3/2 š‘„^2 , b = "āˆ’" 1/3š‘„ Tr + 1 = 6Cr (šŸ‘/šŸ š’™^šŸ )^(šŸ” āˆ’ š’“) ((āˆ’šŸ)/šŸ‘š’™)^š’“ = 6Cr (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) (š‘„^2 ")" ^((6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ)) ((āˆ’1)/3 "Ɨ" 1/š‘„)^š‘Ÿ = 6Cr (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) (š‘„")" ^(2(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ)) ((āˆ’1)/3)^š‘Ÿ (1/š‘„)^š‘Ÿ = 6Cr (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) (š‘„")" ^(12 āˆ’ 2š‘Ÿ) ((āˆ’1)/3)^š‘Ÿ (š‘„)^(āˆ’š‘Ÿ) = 6Cr (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) ((āˆ’1)/3)^š‘Ÿ (š‘„")" ^(12 āˆ’ 2š‘Ÿ) (š‘„)^(āˆ’š‘Ÿ) = 6Cr (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) ((āˆ’1)/3)^š‘Ÿ (š‘„")" ^(12 āˆ’ 2š‘Ÿ āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) = 6Cr (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ š‘Ÿ) ((āˆ’1)/3)^š‘Ÿ (š‘„")" ^(12 āˆ’3š‘Ÿ) We need to find the term independent of x So, power of x is 0 š‘„^(12 āˆ’ 3š‘Ÿ) = x0 Comparing powers 12 ā€“ 3r = 0 12 = 3r 12/3 = r 4 = r r = 4 Putting r = 4 in (1) T4+1 = 6C4 (3/2)^(6 āˆ’ 4) ((āˆ’1)/3)^4 (š‘„")" ^(12 āˆ’3(4)) T5 = 6C4 (3/2)^2 (1/3^4 ) (š‘„")" ^(12 āˆ’12) = 6C4 (3^2/2^2 )(1/3^4 ) (š‘„")" ^0 = 6C4 (1/2^2 )(3^2/3^4 ) (1) = 6C4 (1/2^2 )(1/3^2 ) = 6!/4!(6 āˆ’ 4)! (1/4)(1/9) = 6!/4!(2)! (1/4)(1/9) = (6(5)(4)!)/4!(2)! (1/4)(1/9) = (5 )/12 Hence, the term which is independent of x is 5th term = T5 = šŸ“/šŸšŸ
